Fury says he’s doing Haye a favor by fighting him

Undefeated Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) seems to think he’s doing former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) by choosing to fight him on September 28th at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, UK. Fury feels that the 32-year-old Haye didn’t have a lot of options for his next fight until he came along and agreed to fight him. Continue reading

The WBO Cruiserweight Champion takes on his mandatory challenger at the Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle in Stuttgart, Germany. The pair will once again trade blows on September 14 in a fight that promises to be a real cracker.

Last time round, the two Germans met on November 3. Back then Huck won by a disputable unanimous decision (115-113, 115-113 and 117-111) at the Gerry Weber Stadion in Halle/Westphalia, Germany. Right after their thrilling encounter Arslan demanded a rematch. Continue reading

In the build up to the fight Chisora and his trainer Don Charles met with the Army Boxers at the 1st Grenadier Guards gym at Lille Barracks in Aldershot and put the soldiers through a power-packed training session ahead of their own Inter-Company Boxing Championships. Continue reading

The Cotto-Rodriguez fight isn’t done yet, but that’s the one they’re working on putting together for Cotto.

Arum said to Dan Rafael at ESPN “I’d like to make him [Crawford] with Gamboa.” Continue reading

Tyson Fury signs contract for Haye fight

 Tyson Fury signs contract for Haye fight25-year-old heavyweight contender Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) has reportedly signed his portion of the contract to face former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) on September 28th at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. Haye already signed his portion of the contract earlier this week for their mega clash.

Fury said on his twitter: “Have this b**ch, Haye! I’ve signed!”

Fury, #5 WBA, #6 WBO, #11 IBF, is now going to have to find a way to beat the much faster and much stronger Haye. It doesn’t look good for Fury no matter how you look at it. Haye, #1 WBA, #4 WBO, #6 WBC, is the superior fighter in every category you can think of. Haye has the speed, power, mobility, defense and experience going for him. Continue reading

Provodnikov agrees to face Mike Alvarado on October 19th

 Provodnikov agrees to face Mike Alvarado on October 19thWelterweight Ruslan Provodnikov (22-2, 15 KO’s) has agreed to fight WBO interim light welterweight champion Mike Alvarado (34-1, 23 KO’s) on October 19th in a fight that could take place in Alvarado’s home city of Denver, Colorado. HBO would be televising the fight.

Now they’re waiting on Top Rank promoter Bob Arum to get his fighter Alvarado to agree to the deal. It’s not likely that Alvarado will turn it down, because he doesn’t have a ton of options right now in terms of fights. Continue reading

Carson Jones: If Brook dies, he dies

#8 IBF Carson Jones (35-9-3, 25 KO’s) must have pulled out some of his old Rocky tapes to get one Ivan Drago’s lines to use on #1 IBF, welterweight contender Kell Brook (29-0, 19 KO’s) at their final press conference to hype their rematch on Saturday night at the Craven Park Stadium, Yorkshire, UK. Continue reading

WBC gives permission for Adonis Stevenson v. Tavoris Cloud fight to go ahead

 WBC gives permission for Adonis Stevenson v. Tavoris Cloud fight to go aheadThe World Boxing Council has given permission for WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson (21-1, 18 KO’s) to make a voluntary defense against former IBF light heavyweight champion Tavoris Cloud (24-1, 19 KO’s), according to Steve Kim.

This means that that the 35-year-old Stevenson can bypass his mandatory title defense against challenger Tony Bellew. I’m sure Bellew won’t like this news because he had been hoping that he’d be next in line to face Stevenson after he beat Isaac Chilemba recently to become his mandatory. Continue reading

Donaire likely to fight Darchinyan in rematch in November

 Donaire likely to fight Darchinyan in rematch in NovemberBob Arum is looking to match Nonito Donaire (31-2, 20 KO’s) against Vic Darchinyan (39-5-1, 28 KO’s) in a fight that’ll take place in November, according to Dan Rafael. Why Arum is interested in making this match after all these years is anyone’s guess.

It’s likely that he sees Darchinyan as one of the few recognizable names that he can put with Donaire. It’s also a fight that is a winnable one for Donaire, and he clearly needs a victory after getting soundly beaten by WBA super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux last April. Continue reading

Adonis Stevenson wants interim fight against Cloud; Bellew may have to wait

Tony Bellew (20-1-1, 12 KO’s) may have to wait for his title shot against WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson (21-1, 18 KO’s) for a title while longer because Stevenson is looking to slip in an optional title defense before the Bellew fight against former IBF light heavyweight champion Tavoris Cloud (24-1, 19 KO’s).

Golovkin Gives Canelo a Shot Early In the Fight, Still Expects A Boring Bout

 Golovkin Gives Canelo a Shot Early In the Fight, Still Expects A Boring Bout(Photo credit: Esther Lin/Showtime) “I know Saul, and I think that he has a better chance in the first half of the fight, than in the second. If there will be a direct exchange of punches, than there is no doubt that he will win. But I am sure that Floyd will not do that, he doesn’t need to do that, thus there will be no explosive war, as some are expecting. I think that the fight will be boring. Still we are all hoping for a big show,” stated Gennady Golovkin in a recent interview with Gorodokboxing.

I believe that most would agree with Gennady, and the fact of the matter is, while there is an entire army of fans out there thinking that Alvarez will be able to bully Mayweather Jr., he simply won’t be able to get close enough to do the damage. Continue reading

Fury will win the press conferences; Haye will win fight

 Fury will win the press conferences; Haye will win fightDavid Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) and Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) will be meeting up on September 28th at the Manchester Arena, in Manchester, UK. This Thursday, Haye and Fury will be announcing the fight. The fight itself promises to be a rather easy one for Haye, because Fury hasn’t looked good against the mediocre opposition he’s faced thus during his 5 year pro career.

However, Fury should at least win the press conference this Thursday and all the remaining press conferences as well. Haye will likely let Fury do most of the talking in building this fight, because his chances of getting the better of Fury in the trash talking department are slim and none.

Fury is one of those types of fighters that are willing and ready to say anything. He tends to get heated when his opponents try and trash talk him back. Continue reading
